About the Lecture

Join us for National Geographic Live – View From Above. Sometimes, a little distance is all you need to see things in a brand new way. For astronaut Terry Virts, his newfound perspective was from the International Space Station (ISS), where he installed the Cupola module, granting an unprecedented 360-degree view from the station. When he later became the commander of the ISS, he made good use of the Cupola, taking more photographs than any astronaut who came before him. Many of those images were later used in the National Geographic book View From Above and IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, but to hear Virts tell it, no photo can capture the perfect shade of blue from a sunrise viewed from outer space.

About the Speaker

NASA astronaut Terry Virts has served as pilot of the space shuttle Endeavour, a crew member on the Russian Soyuz spacecraft, and most recently as commander of the International Space Station during 200 consecutive days in space—one of the longest continuous space missions of any NASA astronaut.

Terry appeared in the 2016 IMAX film A Beautiful Planet, a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space that features stunning footage—much of it shot by Terry while aboard (and outside) the International Space Station—of our magnificent blue planet, and humanity’s impact on it.

His photography, which provides incredible aerial views of Earth and the vast space that surrounds it, is featured in the National Geographic book View From Above, released in October 2017.

About the Show

Terry Virts
Terry Virts

Step back, about 220 miles from earth, and experience our planet from a new perspective. Former International Space Station Commander Terry Virts helped to install the outpost’s 360-degree observation module, which not only helped him to take more photos than any astronaut before him, but also gives those who see the images a deeper understanding of our planet’s climate, economics, and place in the universe.

Themes: space, exploration, science, climate, photography   

 

This is the daytime school performance. National Geographic Live A View From Above will also have a lecture at 7:00 pm open to the public.

About the Lecture

Join us for National Geographic Live – Between River and Rim: Hiking the Grand Canyon. In an effort to share the uncharted glory and to shed light on the myriad threats faced by the crown jewel of America’s National Parks, writer Kevin Fedarko joined photographer/filmmaker Pete McBride on an audacious and demanding adventure—to cut a transect, on foot, across the entire length of the Grand Canyon.

Estimated at more than 750 miles, the hike was brutal beyond his wildest expectations. Fedarko carried as much as 50 pounds of gear, equipment, and food strapped to his back and had no trail to follow, risking severe consequences with a single misstep. But even as he pushed himself to the brink of his physical and mental limits, the unrivaled beauty of the canyon and his motivation to protect it drove him onward. Hear his behind-the-scenes stories of this grueling but critical expedition, illustrated with McBride’s stunning visuals.

About the Lecture

Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic’s most seasoned photographers and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater telling the oceans’ stories. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters, and has even lived at the bottom of the sea to get close to his subjects.

This past fall, National Geographic Books published “Ocean Soul”, a landmark retrospective of Skerry’s photographs. In the book and this presentation, Skerry takes us from the glacial waters of the North Atlantic, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the balmy central Pacific, where he photographed damaged coral ecosystems rebuilding themselves.

On stage, Skerry is a passionate spokesman for the oceans he loves to photograph. His riveting presentations to audiences at TED, Harvard, and London’s Royal Geographic Society inspire reverence for the marine realm and offer hope for protecting the vitality of the world’s oceans.

About the Lecture

Meet Spinosaurus, the largest predatory dinosaur yet discovered—larger than T. rex—and hear the incredible story of how this prehistoric giant was almost lost to science, before being brought back to light with the help of a remarkable young paleontologist.

Nizar Ibrahim

Discovered more than half a century ago in Morocco by the great German paleontologist Ernst Stromer, Spinosaurus’ fossil remains were lost in the Allied bombing of Germany during World War II. With the help of recent fossil discoveries in the desert, and Stromer’s own data and drawings, contemporary scientists including German/Moroccan paleontologist and National Geographic Emerging Explorer Nizar Ibrahim have reconstructed a full skeletal model of Spinosaurus, which has been featured on the National Geographic Channel and presented in the National Geographic Museum.

With amazing video recreating the lost world of the Cretaceous-era Sahara, Ibrahim will tell the story of Spinosaurus’ discovery, loss, and rediscovery, and explain what— other than its size— makes this ancient monster unique.
